    Both are valid, the .gz extension just mean that its been compressed to that is is smaller to serve faster. You can have them co-exist to each other.

    There is also "Sitemap indices" which on the other hand is a good way to drill down and show more details in specific ares. It's an xml sitemap that points to other xml sitemaps.
